ere!eil anil nilU 1114 In
for 1JMI3 Appropriation.
In Th Pe of Thursday msotion was
made rf the fsrt that City Clerk Bhrigley.
in conformity with th rliy charter and th
ordinances In force, had advertised for bids
for -tippUc for the various department.
There la need of stationery, feed for the
fire 1epir-nunt horfea, coal for the fire
holla, the shoeing of horsea belonging to
the city, etc. Bid for lumber for the
street department are also asked for.
Grain, drugs and supplies for the emer
gency hospital are wanted.
The bidders are supposed to file with the
elty clerk their bids by aoon of December
59. h!!e the city reserves the right to ac
cept cr reject any or all bids.
"It 13 more than likely that the city will
reject all bids for supplies," said a mem
ber cf the counrll last night. "Section lfig
of the city charter" says that no contract
shall be entered Into by the city council or
ny committee or member thereof and no
expenses Incurred by any of the officers or
departments of the corporation, whether
the object of the expenditure shall have
been ordered by the city council or not. un
less an appropriation shall have been pre
viously miide."
With this section of the charter In view
the members of the council cannot legally
' pay nny attention to hide received. While
one portion cf the "good book"' says that
hldn shall be advertised for at a certain
time . another counteracts that by saying
that there must bo money on hand. Conse
quently the supplies will most likely be
purchased as needed and the dealers will
remit bills to the city when the 1903 appro
priation Is available.

William H. Fleming. "No one ot Shakes

makes a comprehensive study of four other
plays, "Macbeth." "Julius Caesar,"
"Othello" and "The Twelfth Night."
The method followed is extremely help

To the playgoer and atudent th book is

latest romance, which deals somewhat with
telepathy, the transmigration of souls, and
with a great friendship between man and
man. Is laid in modern Roman unofficial
society. The plot Itself concerns a young
woman In whom tha author has evidently
attempted to produce the Hellenic perfec
tion of Intellect and beauty; a man who
loves her In the usual, commonplace sort ot
way, and hla friend, a commonplace sort of
man,, who loves her In a most extraordinary
sort of way, on the assumption that they
had been lovers in ancient Rome she as
an exiled Vestal Virgin and he as a Roman
convert to Christianity. When they meet,
in the book, in the saletto of a modern
Roman matron, she recognizes him at once,
whila that very night he dreams of the cir
cumstances of their supposed former exist
ence, and the next morning tbey meet un
expectedly at the ruined Temple ot Pallas,
each evidently being drawn hither by some
curious dominating force. There aro sev
